My dog ate combat Roch bait do I need to worry
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

Hi. My name is***** How long ago did this happen? What is the active ingredient in the bait? Did he just eat the bait or the actual physical trap?

Bait Fiponil

Sleeping because I gave her Benadryl
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 5 months ago.

Alright. Fipronil is the active ingredient in the very popular and safe topical flea product, Frontline. So it is used on dogs and cats all the time. For a dog to ingest a small strip of a bait that has it in it, it wouldn't seem to be a concerning situation. How big is this dog?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Less than 10 pounds
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 5 months ago.

Did he eat the actual plastic portion of the trap or did he just eat the bait out of it? How long ago did this happen?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
She ate it about 20 mins ago
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 5 months ago.

Did she eat the actual plastic portion of the trap or just chew it up and get the bait portion out of it?
